your hinge pins go through your arms and into the so called hangers ie arm mounts

Easy... RF is Rear-Front and RR is Rear-Rear. Both are in the rear of the car, but one is for the Front of the arm, and one is for the rear of the arm.

The wide hangers are just that, they are a mm or 2mm wider than the original (I forget exactly how much wider). That does 2 things... 1, it makes the rear of the car a tad wider (obviously), which makes it ever so slightly more stable over bumps... and 2, it raises the roll center on the rear of the car (more roll resistance), which helps the car rotate slightly easier. (more steering).

I always ran the wide hangers in the RB5 because the car needed a bit of help rotating. Don't know which will be preferred on the 6. I hear the 6 rotates just a bit better than the 5 out of the box, and if so, the narrow hangers might be a better option keeping car planted. Ill certainly be testing both when I start getting track time with the car.

You're welcome... the concept/theory is constant from car to car, and I have experience with this exact issue when I was running the Durango DEX210.

With the 210, you also had a car that was capable of being run in MM or RM. but the chassis was primarly designed as a MM car, with RM being an option. The springs that came on the car were designed to have a balanced car in MM configuration, where you have a lot more weight on the front axles, and a lot less on the rear axles. When you built the car in RM configuration, which of course moves a lot of the static weight rearward, the kit springs gave you a really imbalanced car. The rear springs were far too soft, and the front springs far too heavy. You ended up with a car that turned about as well as a stretched limo.

In order to get a balanced car, you needed to run heavier rears, and softer fronts. When I do spring balance testing, I figure out what springs are required front and rear to get the car balanced. That is done by looking at the frequency that the suspension operates at. I don't care what the numbers say, I just look to see if both ends of the car are at the same or near the same frequency. This is done with a fully built car, in ready-to-run trim, with no oil in the shocks. There is quite a bit to it actually, and id be happy to explain more if you want, just send me a PM

My point is, I BELIEVE, that the RB6 is the exact opposite of the 210, in that it's primarily a RM car, with MM being an option. If that is true, the springs that come in the kit will be for a RM balanced car. You CAN'T have one set of springs that will be ideal for both a RM config and MM config on the same car. The static weight is just too different. Will it "work"? Sure... you can always get around the track with a car that pushes a bit, or over-steers a bit... but the IDEAL pair of springs for the car will certainly be different between the two configs.

Upon further review after day one it appears that I cracked the rear front hinge pin holder (UM508). I went ahead and ordered the nicely upgraded alum umw514. that should solve that.

You will want the wide alum hangers...

Has anyone tried the set up sheet from Japan that was posted a few pages back? We run on outdoor clay with medium traction that is hard packed and somewhat bumpy. There is often a light layer on top but when blown off it is smooth and traction is good... I may give that set up a try.
